Inter play at the San Siro, which they share with Milanese rivals AC Milan.
The club was founded on 9 March 1908 as Football Club Internazionale Milano, following a "schism" from the Milan Cricket and Football Club, when several members of the club were unhappy with the domination of Italians in the AC Milan team, and broke away, leading to the creation of Internazionale. From the beginning, the club was open to foreign players and thus lived up to its founding name, fielding players from overseas throughout its history.
Chelsea first met Inter in the 2009-10 UEFA Champions League first knockout round. Inter, managed by former Chelsea manager José Mourinho, won both legs and thus progressed before going on to win the tournament for the first time since 1965.
